The first of a two month run of one hour shows to accommodate EuroSongCountdown 2012 with Hikaru Freeman and yours truly.
And it’s show #201, so a bit of a change in format will certainly keep the flame burning under the saucepan of musical milky chocolate night time drinks.
I Just Want To Celebrate – Rare Earth
Train Of Thought – The Sharp
I Only Have Eyes For You – The Flamingos
Spinner – Portico Quartet
Soldiers Of The Queen – D’Oyly Carte Chorus
The first instalment of “G&S” – Go & Sample. Actually, it’s a not so clever idea to venture somewhere where TFC has NEVER ventured before ! It’s really G&S for Gilbert & Sullivan. Most people were either in their Savoy Operas or dragged along to watch them while at school. A century and more of from their prime they still are a watchword for good tunes and pithy lyrics. And don’t forget “Topsy Turvy“.
Hold Me, Hold Me, Hold Me – Blosson Dearie
It’s Not You, It’s Me – The Collectables
Open The Door – Adam Hebert
Help ! – The Beatles
When Your Lover Is Gone – Dorothy Loudon

Jack That Cat Was Clean – Dr Horse
What Makes You Beautiful – One Direction
